the New Rochelle Police Department

two centuries, the community had employed constables to provide law enforcement services.

in law enforcement services including community oriented policing. The Department currently responds to close to 50,000 calls
for service, investigates over 2,000 Part 1 crimes, and processes 3,000 arrests every year. In its history it has responded
to and managed literally millions of police functions and events from simple traffic control business to standoffs with barricaded
gunmen and multiple homicides.
